 In light of recent improvements in terminal fluidity and a reduction in congestion at WUT, effective May 25, 2022, WUT is suspending imposition of the long stay rehandling fee due on containers with extended dwell. The fee may be reinstituted at a future date if operational conditions deteriorate.

This past year has been a difficult one for all.  Despite our best efforts, the local import container dwell at WUT has continued to increase which has directly impacted our operations and terminal fluidity.  The increased dwell has also caused additional  yard rehandling and the need to constantly restock the RTG delivery rows.   WUT has made every effort to make and keep cargo available for pick up, but unfortunately the long dwell containers are making this extremely difficult.

Effective November 15th, 2021, all local import units that have been in an available location for 5 days and have exceeded 15 calendar days on terminal will incur a $310 Long Stay Rehandling Fee.  Nov. 15th will count as day 1 for containers currently on dock. Units will be placed on hold and payment will be due prior to making an appointment.  Payments will need be made through eModal. This action is designed to encourage the rapid movement of local import containers.

WUT urges customers to pick up high dwelling units before the inception date to avoid the additional fee.
